Re: How much money do you get for donating plasma or blood?
People simply dont get it.... there are many people who are dying and needing medical assitance. We donate plasma just to save their lives for medical reasons. Imagine if this happens to YOUR OWN family member that needing your plasma nor part of you! I am an offically donor, I gives my plasma 2 time a week, nothing wrong with that, yet I am not an addict, nor despirate of money........ They do pay me- what I do with the money, I give 10 bucks each to those agency; CURE FOR AIDS/HIV; CURE FOR BREAST CANCERS; CHILDREN HOSPITAL; CF (kids have hard time to breathe, had this permant diease)..... the rest of the money leftover I keep for my meal afterward the donation!

Now let me tell you, drugs addict fuck off. They DO test and screening you THEY DO CHECK your body if you being honest or not.

People who think of themselves and does not thinking of others who are in needs= SELFISH!! Simply!

I can understand some people are stuck with no choice yet have an HEALTHY plasma which they can also feel good about themselves by saving others lives plus saving themselves by earning an little bucks.

I am even an student- I do understand how some student may feel being an student too.

Lastly, it doesnt hurt, easy to do, important you just eating healthy, drinking plenty fluids and such, you will be FINE! Donation of Plasma isnt that hard. I gave mine all the time- and I didnt get any sick or any side affect. yet I am only 26 years old!

$ is 35 first time, 2nd time $50, the rest 30/25= 55 per weekly.! Sometimes they throw bonus.......

See Someone here can make difference in other's lives. so

ASSWIPES go away and educate yourself before saying such an curel comments!

Re: How much money do you get for donating plasma or blood?
There is nothing wrong with donating plasma.. you aren't selling your soul or your DNA. Some of you guys literally know nothing about the medical field. Extensive tests are done during a screening process so if you are an addict then you are screwed and won't be compensated for your time. Go ahead and give that plasma man, just make sure you have a high protein diet if possible. People like you make it possible for me to care for patients that are suffering from severe burns or major trauma.
 Quoting: Anonymous Medic 980573


This is one of the only intelligent posts on this thread. Everything is sterile, they open the packaging to all of the plasma donation products right in front of you. They cannot return the "wrong" red blood cells to your body because they return ALL of your rbcs, and only yours! Each donor has their own spinning machine. Every time you go in, they do a quick evaluation: They check the fronts and backs of your arms for track marks, test your protein and iron levels, take your weight, blood pressure and temperature. If you feel the slightest bit dizzy or hot, they fan you off and give you an ice pack and if it is a reoccuring problem, you cannot donate. My friend fainted after her first time and she is deffered permanently. In Portland Oregon, what you get depends on your weight- First donation is $30-50, second is $50-70 and for the next 4 donations you get $30-50 each time and $15-25 for any donations after the first 6. If you call before going in and arrive during a slow part of the day, you can potentially make around $30 per hour, so I don't see how "it's not worth it". I usually feel the slightest bit of nausea while donating, but it is a mellow sensation. I personally feel pretty good actually after donating, my guess is that is because they rehydrate your blood with saline when they return it and I'm probably better hydrated leaving than I was going in. It is no more uncomfortable than having your blood drawn most of the time. Anytime I walk in, I see all kinds of people from all walks of life. Sure, some go in to feed a habit of some sort, but some come in because they have kids, no job at the time, are students (like me), elderly, etc. Being judgemental, or talking DNA conspiracy theories is just absurd! I believe that the government does alot of terrible things, but that's just silly! (Although I would be amused to hear someone try to explain what this 'genocidal DNA' buisness is all about.) The worse they are doing here is "taking advantage of poor people"... if you really must 'go there' and using them to further the agendas of Big Pharma in making expensive medications and shock treatments while they pay (after more and more donations) very little by comparison to their profit margins...

All I can say to all the "Naysayers"...Don't give, don't donate...convince others not to....and I hope that one day very soon, you or one of your "beloved" family member or dear friend dies, from needing Blood or Blood products...and none are available...because YOU! convinced some donor or potential donor not to GIVE.

DON'T sell your plasma. While you can sell it once or even twice a week, its hard on your body to do that and then there is a lot of risks such as getting the wrong red cells back to getting various infections.

On top of that after a few times you will develop a permanent scar where the needle(s) go in.

Re: How much money do you get for donating plasma or blood?
I donate plasma twice a week and its because I want to help people, and I have no job, been looking for a job but in the meantime I gotta do what I gotta do.. It really helps me get by,yeah $240.00 a month is not a ton of money but I do have spending money and I am helping people who are sick. I read the post about having a addiction, if you were addicted and needed money for your addiction you will not get it this way!!! You cannot be sick, have aids, take medications or any drugs before donating. They do extensive tests and before each donation they test your protein and iron, look at your arms to make sure you are not donating elsewhere or "shooting up"..you have to be healthy to donate plasma, they will turn you away even if you have a elevated pulse, they are very careful at screening the donors.Everyone has their own opinions but some people should really keep their opinion to themselves when it comes to this. There are alot of sick people in the world, including small children that benefit from others donating plasma!!!

Re: How much money do you get for donating plasma or blood?
I was desparate and decided to give it a go. In Louisiana you can do this twice a week. The first time you receive $40.........the second %60.

However, I honestly thought I would die on the way home. I became severely ill and thought I must eat something. I stopped at a gas station that also had a subway. Standing in line to order I nearly fainted, barely got my order stated, then asked them to bring it to me as I needed to sit down. I figured I would drop dead right then and there. Never went back again......and will never consider such a thing again.

Not sure how I made it back home......way to sick to drive, but somehow I did.

My advice: Don't do it, better to die naturally than request help from one of those plasma centers.

Re: How much money do you get for donating plasma or blood?
I think you guys are mistaking BLOOD donation with PLASMA donation. They are nowhere near the same thing. I've been donating plasma for a year, it's not that bad. The needle stings a little going in (obviously) but after that it's smooth sailing. It feels a little funky the first time to have your blood going out then coming back in, but it's not at all that bad! I am usually a wuss when it comes to this kind of stuff too. In ND, they add a saline solution in at the end to temporarily take the place of your plasma until it rebuilds in your system, and it is room temperature which doesn't sound like much but it will make you shiver for a few minutes, nothing major. It's $70/week where I donate, $20 for the first time in a week, and $50 for the second time in a week. I have heard rumors that at the start of next year they are moving to $60/week in stead of $70. I personally do not feel wiped out at all after donating. I feel %100 normal. Hopefully this gave you guys a little help, but in my opinion there is nothing wrong with donating plasma. As for the jerk who thinks it's for "addictions," how about the college student who has two parents that were moved to part time because of the economy? I use this money to purchase meals throughout the week and get myself through college, while working 30 hours a week AND being a full-time student. Think before you speak.

Re: How much money do you get for donating plasma or blood?
Donations from red cell reagent donors are used to determine a patient's blood type, when used in a blood type test pack. It works through the reactions a new sample has with each of three pre-determined samples, from three different reagent donors.

Without this knowledge, administering the wrong blood type can harm or kill a patient.

In the UK blood donors are not paid, except in the knowledge that it will help someone. Not judging tho

Wow, I am incredibly disgusted with the person who wrote that people who donate have addictions what kind of ignorant fuck do you have to be to say something so incredibly wrong?? Do your research, jackass. I myself have an illness called alpha-one anti-trypsin deficiency and DEPEND on those "druggies" to survive. It's not one sided, prick. What do you think they do with that plasma?? Eat it? Before you go jumping down someones throat with ignorance because they need the money (for whatever reason!!!!!), maybe you should worry about your own pathetic life. Don't wanna donate plasma or blood? Than don't. It's that simple. Moral of this whole long thing: your an asshole.

Sincerely,
Someone who needs that plasma to live, and is very thankful of the people who actually DO donate!!

In Hawaii, you donate, not sell blood.

I donate blood about every 60 days. Have for many years. Never had any ill effects. I am now 78 and they still take it. Usually do it in the afternoon so that I can work in the morning, because they recommend no strenuous work or lifting for 4 to 6 hours afterwards.

The church or school volunteers who help run the program usually provide a bowl of soup, sandwiches, snacks and juice or water.

Re: How much money do you get for donating plasma or blood?
Ok, couple things: I stumbled across this thread trying to look into different plasma compensations per region.

I've sold plasma, and (1) DNA profile is fine, they use it for genetics research, awesome IMO; (2) anybody who thinks they're high and mighty for donating blood and "not selling it" doesn't understand the science, plasma can't be separated from a whole blood donation, which is precisely why there are separate donation facilities, and federal law permits plasma to be paid while whole blood isn't; (3) the conspiracy theories are bullshit, and as long as you're going to a good (read: licensed) lab with good practices (any time you have ANYTHING stuck in you, just watch them open the packaging. If they don't open a new package in front of you, get the hell out) there's no risk of cross-contamination of any kind.

The thread's old but since it came up so high in search results I felt the need to post this. If you're considering going in for plasma donation, just make sure you follow all the bet practices (eat healthily before, avoid strain after, plenty of water, know what institution you're going to) and it's an easy bit of cash in exchange for legitimately life saving material, especially if you're a repeat donor over time.
